I just ate a bunch of ice cream, did I enjoy it? Not really, I am capable of really loving ice cream, but you know when you’re on auto pilot? You’re going " I normally love ice cream, since it’s here lets eat it"….even though you don’t have any urge to eat it.

I’ve been doing pretty good since posting this…I’ve been concentrating on ‘ego dominion’ and it’s worked pretty well so far, but we’ll see how it goes this weekend–that’s usually when I do it, just out of boredom.
